Invest in Futures
Invest in Futures is an initiative that unites
the financial services industry with the aim of helping
disadvantaged young people become economically active.
Launched in 2005 by Michael Marks CBE, the initiative has raised
more than £14.7m for The Prince’s Trust, supporting tens of
thousands of young people into jobs, education or training.
centrepiece of Invest in Futures is the annual gala dinner,
supported by leading members of hedge fund communities, senior
investment banking executives from Europe and the US and high net
worth supporters of The Prince’s Trust.
Each year the event has become more glamorous and high-profile.
Previous performers include Eric Clapton, Jools Holland, Sting,
Joss Stone and Bryan Adams in venues such as Buckingham Palace, the
Natural History Museum and the Roundhouse.
